7000 flowering plants were pulled, packed and loaded onto an 18 wheeler for overnight storage at the end of the Colorado Garden & Home Show by various Rotary Clubs and Boy Scout Troops. Early and snowy on Monday morning, over 700 plants were delivered to the Littleton area. The flowers brought smiles to the folks at Meals on Wheels, Libby Bortz Assisted Living Center, Bradley House, Amity Plaza and Alyson Center. Our thanks to all the Rotary volunteers, their family members and friends who helped make this year’s event a total success. Way to go Team Flower Power!
For the past several years, Littleton Rotarian volunteers have made Valentine’s Day a big deal at the Libby Bortz Assisted Living Center in Downtown Littleton. The center puts on a Valentine’s Day Dance complete with a live orchestra playing all the old standards from the Big-Band era. Since most of the residents are women, there is a shortage of men to dance with. Rotary to the rescue!
 
The one hour dance was a total success and the residents were so grateful to have someone to dance and talk with. How special it was to see the joy in the faces and feel the love that was expressed by everyone there.
Littleton Rotary has a long history of sponsoring high school students who wish to take part in Rotary’s Youth Exchange Program. This exceptional program opens the door to students who want to experience an academic year of study abroad. Likewise, Rotary Clubs welcome inbound students from around the world and arrange host families for them.
 
This past academic year, Littleton Rotary sponsored a student from Columbine High School who spent her time in Poprad, Slovakia. She recently visited our club to present a program summarizing her amazing experience. In addition to learning the language, she completed her academic studies successfully, enjoyed her host families, made lots of friends and loved the country and its history.
 
High school students from the greater Littleton area are encouraged to consider the Rotary Youth Exchange Program as an exciting opportunity to broaden their understanding of the world and experience a different culture. For more information, check out the Rocky Mountain Youth Exchange website.
L-R: Erica Shields, Dean Brown, Michelle Mallin
Club Member, Erica Shields is a member of the Board of Directors of The Honor Bell Foundation. She recently helped arrange a special presentation to the Rotary Club of Littleton of the history of Honor Bell by the Foundation's Executive Director, Michelle Mallin.
On the second Monday of each month, Littleton Rotary members volunteer at Project C.U.R.E. headquarters sorting donated new and surplus medical items. Those items are then boxed, palletised, and readied for shipment to clinics and hospitals in some of the world’s most critical areas. Teams of highly trained Project C.U.R.E. specialists travel to areas of need and do on-site evaluations. Once the evaluation of needs are completed, Project C.U.R.E. works to prepare the shipment and secures funding for transport.
Littleton Rotary spearheaded the fundraising effort that ultimately lead to the purchase of Project C.U.R.E’s. world headquarters located in Centennial, CO.
